    Re: UA Administration Starting to Voice Displeasure with So Many Daytime Games

    If we were playing power 5 teams instead of New Mexico State and Western Carolina....say instead, Kansas State and Virginia maybe theyd move some of them to an evening game. Even Saban said he wanted all power 5 teams if they could.

    We schedule who we can schedule, I get that, but these poor opponents dont help the case...especially like this weekend when ND and Georgia play in prime time.

    Now, with LSU almost always getting the night slot no matter who they play and Bama almost never getting the night game leads one to believe there is certainly a biased...why couldn't they have 6 of 12 and Bama have 6 of 12...equitable.

    Your good games are CBS, and your other games are SECN - all are early games. That is the point. Unless you are playing a top 20 team, you are getting an early game. Welcome to the SEC.

    I don’t see many South Carolina fans complaining about lower competition when they automatically had the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd ranked teams on their schedule before the season. In fact I see more complaining about adding an additional P5 team because it probably costed them a Bowl game.

    Some of y’all really need to come back down to earth and realize loading up a schedule with P5 teams is the absolute dumbest thing we could do. I don’t care if Saban said he preferred it. The fact is that the 3 other playoff teams last year played cake schedules while we had to play through Hell to get there.

    Check how many day games LSU has had to play...

    Case in point, they are playing the mighty Northwestern St. at 6:30....

    SECN has a night game and Alabama almost never gets it...and at this time of the year USM v. Alabama is about as high of quality as that game gets.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    I assure you that I’m not the only fan of this program that lives within 100 miles of the university that sat on his wallet the first two games. There are thousands of us.
    Did you even watch saban's press conference where he said we don't pick these teams out of a freaking hat? I know people think that saban and byrnne just snap there fingers and stuff just happens. But it just doesn't work that way.

    And the SEC did absolutely nothing about it until Alabama started making a fuss.

    LSU has been getting preferential treatment on the issue of the night games for years, but it's not just LSU. Alabama has been consistently drawing the early games (so LSU gets what they want, Alabama doesn't), and I suppose the SEC or ESPN has a reason for doing it, but it still isn't fair.

    Agreed, it isn't fair, but it is because you are Alabama, a huge TV draw. You would hurt the ratings of their bigger prime time games. You only get that time slot when your game is the best that ESPN has to offer, with rare CBS double header type exceptions.

    Then maybe the question is answered by the university unburdening themselves of the SEC because this has become a reoccuring theme with this outfit in Birmingham.

    I don't really buy that totally but maybe they should start making Sankey fill his britches a few times.

    I get what your saying Big Tide but I am not sure people are glued to the TV when Bama is playing New Mexico State and Southern Miss.
